Laura Catena named this exceptional wine for her son. The ungrafted (native root stock) vines, averaging over 45 years of age, grow at an altitude of 3150 feet. The wine was aged 12 months in French oak, 60% new and 40% second use, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Wine Advocate (Gutierrez): 93 "From new plantings in Gualtallary, the 2014 Malbec has increased the proportion of fruit coming from this cool place to make it approximately a 50/50 blend of Malbec fruit from Gualtallary and La Consulta, both in the Valle de Uco. There is a big jump in precision and harmony along with more freshness and elegance. The expansive palate has great depth and fruit with very good freshness. This could well be the best vintage of Luca Malbec and I think the best might be yet to come, as the new vineyard matures. 90,000 bottles were produced."
